SAMCRO’s trials within the Hecate gate

So over the past five month’s I have been taking part in the latest of the All Scars annual narrative campaigns – The Hecate Gate.

Basically our forces have been sucked into a demi-plane by Tzeentch and Khorne and are being forced to battle to prove ourselves worthy of facing the final guardian (Magnus) and escape via the Gate.

We formed teams amongst ourselves and I was in team WAAC (Win At All Costs, because its entirely the opposite of how we play). My goal for this campaign was to face as many people that I hadn’t played before as possible or failing that opponents I have a good laugh with.

Game 1 was against David’s Blood Angels, now in 7th edition I had a good track record against the Sanguin Sons however this did not prove so against the brutality of David’s assault.

Game 2 was another imperial force, Crimson Fists run by Adam. This was one of the most fun, relaxed and enjoyable games of 40k I’ve played in ages, and the sneaking a win by 2 points  made it even better.

Game 3 was another first, facing the Ultrasmurfs of Matthew, bouyed by my success against Adam I was brought rapidly down to earth as Matthew’s helblaster entrenched forces ripped me a new orifice. Great fun though.

Game 4 was Blood Angels once again, this time my annual throwdown with Patrick. He brought a Blood Angel and Lamenters force while I fielded my Black Legion with a Thousand Son allied battallion. It was exceedingly close and Patrick thought he’d just managed to secure a draw when I destroyed his leviathon in close combat and reminded him of the Objective card I’d held since the first round to score a point for destroying a unit in assault – sneaky 1 point win to me.

Game 5 was yesterday and was against another of my favourite people to play Dave C, usually I face his Ultrasmurf’s but this time I faced his Thousand Sons. Chaos on Chaos! It was a brutal, fun-filled game with both of us having equal amounts of amazing and dire dice rolls in good measure. Dave came back hard in closing round but the mission conditions granted me just enough points for a 7-5 win.

Another of the fun parts of this campaign was the fact that its the first one I’ve not been involved in running myself, so all I had to do was play my games and enjoy. Huge thanks to all my opponents and Andrew for organising a great campaign – thoroughly enjoyed myself.
